Network is turning 50!

As we see the end of year in sight and 2024 approaching. Network is getting excited to celebrate our 50th anniversary. Celebrating 5 decades of supporting our OOSH community and children’s time out of school, helping our OOSH community grow stronger.

For over 50 years we have supported the sector to grow, get better recognised and become the professional and much valued sector it is today!

Today we are the largest non-government organisation dedicated to supporting OOSH. Alongside our members and supporters we are continuing to work hard to make children’s time out of school count and get OOSH the recognition it deserves.

If you would like to be a part of our 50th year anniversary planning committee please let us know. We would love to engage with as many of our members as possible. And this will be a fun committee to be involved in.
